abstract = "Eimeria is an internal animal parasite that causes serious diseases and animal death, and reduces animal productivities. Eimeria has more than one species for every single genus of animals. An early diagnosis of Eimeria infection is usually achieved by examining fecal microscopy images. As Eimeria oocysts vary in terms of shapes, sizes and textures, they can be detected by measuring differences in their shapes, sizes and textural features.
